England Counties got revenge for last year’s defeat in Gala by beating the Scotland Club XV in Birmingham.
The hosts took the lead in the fourth minute with a try before Scotland centre George Taylor’s converted effort made it 7-7.
England then went back ahead but a brilliant converted effort by visiting winger Jordan Edmunds made it 14-14.
That was the way it stayed at half-time.
Edmunds, the Boroughmuir flyer, then scored his second as the visitors led 21-14.
However, as the hour approached England went back ahead 24-21 thanks to a penalty and a converted try.
Just after the 60-minute mark they scored a well worked team try which was converted to stretch the advantage to 31-21.
England then added two more scores before Currie prop John Cox, a replacement, added another converted score as the match finished 45-28 to the home side.
